re: Do your homework - 12/2/2014
Florida is a large state, taxes, electric, wages, crime vary city to city. Florida relies on Tourism, no state tax. Jobs, unless you work for the govt, State or for Yourself, you will be stuck in one of those tourism lower wage type jobs. Yes you can make a fair wage just depends on what city you are in. Mr. JM of Milton lives in a town that is outskirts of Pensacola, there is really no big business there to justify a decent pay on what they are use to in NY _ VT. Homeowner Insurance is high due to the low lying area it sits in and has had many tornado and hurricane damages in the past in that area. I don't mean to dis this person, this is just one small spot of Florida. It is Hot from May usually thru Oct and sometimes through Dec. so Fl only has really only 3 months of Cold or cooler weather. The Air Conditioner is Your best friend or a pool. You will pay for electric, but then again in some areas it is not as expensive as others, same with sales tax it varies from city to city. If you prefer retirees, tourists, low taxes, sunshine, hurricanes, heavy rain, fishing, shorts, beaches, golf, jet ski, boating, tanning, and shopping then Florida is for you. If you prefer cooler weather, mountains, lakes, snow, snow mobiling, skiing, snowboarding, shoveling, rusty cars, chopping wood or paying for heating oil, stay up north and just Vacation in Florida.
Small growing town in panhandle of Florida. Close to Eglin and Hurlburt Air Force Bases. Excellent Schools, College, Beaches, Fishing and Nice Folks!! Housing prices are going up as most of the land surrounding is owned by the Air Force. Annual Mullet Festival, 5 acre dog park, Kids park/water park-library-skateboard park-police-fire-city hall-water dept all in one location. Cross the toll bridge to Destin for shopping galore and many restaurants and local watering holes. There are No Bars in Niceville. Alcohol is served at restaurants only. Go to Destin or Fort Walton for Bars. It is Small town Nice!!!
